What can we do to make the site better?
Good question...the site seems pretty good. The only thing some other Cobalt sites *cough* have that this one doesn't is frequent news postings on the homepage. Beleive me, that brings in lots of users.

I look all over the net trying to find news articles... but if you know of some places we should be looking, or you spot something, you can always PM me with the URL and I'll be happy to check it out :)

I think that more pictures of all different colors and angles would be nice to add. :) since the ss's are not out yet, people may be looking for great pictures of them. this site should be the best place to go to look for pictures of the cobalt.

Well acctually, do u wanna know what really pisses me off about this site? The webhost! Half the time the site dont even work, the connection will time out. This is really annoying. I can't be the only one who has this problem.

Who is hosting this site anyway?

I do the hosting, the site also shares the same server as a few other websites I run. I've been doing maintenance and moving things around, thus the reason for the downtime. I've completed most of that tonight tho, so things should be smooth sailing from here on out.

I will need to do one more batch of maintenance on this server, and that is to replace a hard drive that I suspect is going bad.

Yeah, I'm a webhost too (http://bluestealth.com), anyway, I'm not exactly talking about downtime, I'm talking about a bad connection (as if the server is way overloaded). Because, the connection will timeout, then I'll try again, then it will work.

That's what happens when the apache daemon gets stopped and restarted all the time :)

Thats weird... because just one of my sites alone transfers a bit over 200 gigabytes/month. If there were 'connectivity' issues I think I would have other complaints from other users on other sites.

Oh well, we do what we can.

hmm, i dont think your takeing me seriously. but beleive me, there is something going on. for example, on my last post i hit "submit reply" then it timed out and i had to hit it again...maybe its a problem with the connection to my sql server...maybe its the old version of apache

I havent had any complaints from any other users on any other sites. So, we are pulling from a client size base of about 30,000 -- so, yeah, I'd have to say the problem MORE THEN LIKELY isnt on our side... but what do I know.

Whats 30,000 against 1? It must be on our side.
